Day 1

Oh my, I’ve got a LONG way to go . . .

Happy Monday! Just checking in real quick to let you know that my New Year’s Resolution is off and running. Despite an old back injury that’s rearing its ugly head, I’ve been splits-ing every day of two-thousand-and-fifteen. In fact, I’m sitting in a hip stretching position as I write this post right now!

I’m also thrilled to share that a few Bonzai readers will be joining in the year-to-the-splits adventure. Yay! Just like the ol’ Monday Monthly Mission days. So welcome along, and thanks for joining in the fun. ♥

On top of that, I’ve even managed to entice some of my real-life friends, as well as my dad’s best friend and business partner. Huzzah! So if you, like us, have always wanted to be able to do the splits but never could – it’s not too late to hop on board! (And take daily pics if you want, too)

Here are my first few dailies. I actually feel like I’m already making progress:

Day 3
day 4


Today is my first day back at school for the winter quarter, I’m already feeling busy busy and a little bit behind. Oi.

I hope your Monday is a good one, and if it’s your first day back after the holidays (or even if it isn’t), I hope you’re feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, and ready to take 2015 by storm. BONZAI!

Alas, the saga of “Sayward The Bad Blogger” continues. Do you celebrate the Winter Solstice? I do. In fact, it’s one of my very favorite holidays. And last week, I threw my first ever Winter Solstice bash. It was my first, because up until now, I’ve been celebrating with my godparents every year. For decades [...]

Photo by Clovis IV Photography. OMG where the heck have I been??! Bad blogger! It’s true, I suck, BUT I blame love, and you can’t get mad at me for that, right? Love. Love is a tricky mistress. But I digress. Let me tell you a story. Jeremy and I met each other when we [...]
